by Kelli I don’t think I would have adopted my boys [Jeremy, 12, Bradley, 11; he also has a daughter Tara, 28] had I not had the illness. It humanized me, taught me not to be a jerk. It made me do things I never would have done…. It forced me to focus on things […]
by Carder I was bleeding heavily, sitting on the rug, crying. My two little ones were hiding behind a chair, crying. And it hit me: This is a domestic violence situation; if their dad had done this, I would take our children somewhere safe. Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even like J. In his short little life, […]
by Carder As a mom, it wasn’t hard to say yes. I couldn’t refuse. If we can help to try to make people more aware, try to help. Can’t believe that some children are asking for parents for the holidays. This is like, not normal. And there’s so many foster care children. ~ Singer Celine Dion, […]

Statistics tell us that 50-55% of teens experiencing unplanned pregnancies choose single parenting, 30-35% choose abortion, and less than 1% choose to place their children for adoption.
These statistics are disturbing. What if we could reverse the statistics of abortion and adoption? With two million couples waiting to adopt, why doesn’t adoption seem to be an option on the radar screen of parents experiencing unplanned pregnancies?
One reason appears to be that even in well-written articles, adoption is framed in outdated and negative language. Even some professionals who deal with teens have an inaccurate view of adoption, perpetuated by made-for-TV movies showing adoption as it was in the 1970′s.
